With all the warm weather talk, I am inspired to continue discussing warm weather suit fabrics. I don't have the pleasure of experiencing long summers, and it is far too cool to even think about linen and seersucker at this point. Regardless, I am feeling aw so inspired. I have two linen suits, and as I mentioned earlier, I plan to buy a double breasted brown one. I currently own a white/cream suit exactly like the one pictured above, and I own the shoes as well. In addition, I have a three piece linen suit in khaki. Linen to me is very elegant, and it makes the perfect weekend and leisure suit. I receive numerous compliments every time I sport one of my suits. And considering how debonair the suits make a gentleman look, I plan to stay out of restaurants with dense older women populations :) The photo at the bottom is another piece of perfection from the Sartorialist. I have never considered a patterned linen suit, but this one makes me consider that possibility. I love the ticket pocket and peak lapels. Several of my custom suits have peak lapels. I think it gives a custom suit a little something extra while maintaining a classic appeal. Can't wait to hear everyone's thoughts on linen.
